THE ARGENTINE SENIORS' MEN TEAM TRAINED AT TOKYO METROPOLITAN GIMNASIUM FOR THE LAST ROUND OF THE FIVB WORLD CUP

Argentina at the Tokyo Metropolitan Gymnasium training

Tokyo, Japan, December 1, 2011 - The Argentine Seniors' Men Team coached by Javier Weber trained at Tokyo venue for the last phase of this demanding FIVB World Cup, that will qualify the best three teams for the 2012 London Olympic Games. Without chances to be among the best of the competition, the light blue - white jersey team bets to its improvement thinking on the future qualification tournaments, that will depend entirely on the final result of the matches here in Tokyo.

In this city, Argentina will face USA (Friday at 18.20) Egypt on Saturday at 15.00 and China on Sunday at 14.00.

“It is the last part of this competition and we will face it with the goal of improvement as team” expressed the coach to his players.

From now on, the path to the London Olympic Games depens of some results. Brazil, that now stands on the 4th place, just one point behind Italy (qualify the three best teams) is the country that could change everything. If they qualify, the next competition to qualify for London would take place in Argentina, end of December or at the beginning of next January. If they do not qualify, they will host the next qualification competition, that seems would take place next March.

Therefore, nothing has been said yet. Poland stands first with 22 points, Russia second with 21, Italy third with 17, Brazil fourth with 16 and Cuba fifth with 14 with three matches and nine points at stake.
